Crazy Heart (2009)

Director: Scott Cooper
Writers:  Scott Cooper, Thomas Cobb (Novel)
Cast:      Jeff Bridges, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Robert Duvall, Colin Farrell

Jeff Bridges plays an alcoholic country musician who is forced to reassess his life after a doomed romantic relationship.

The film I thought was very similar to Aronofsky's 'The Wrestler' but with a redemptive ending. But you root for it and suits the film really well even though it is predictable. Jeff Bridges sung all the songs that he is performing on the stage and deservedly won plenty of awards for his role in this film.

Rating: 4/5
